Reviews
Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 41 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by no problems, so far... These seem like good drives. The performance is decent and so far displayed no reliability issues, so far. Time will tell if things stay this way. I am using 2 of these in a HP Microserver G7 (N54L), in a ZFS Mirror under FreeNAS serving media and just providing general backup. They have so far been on 24x7 since they were installed which was about the middle of March (It is now the beginning of May). 02 May 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Not installed for long, so can't comment on reliability. But I plugged it in and it worked. Nice start! 01 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by A quality drive I bought two of these to use in a server (non-RAID) running 24/7 and so far, no complaints at all. They're quiet and have good data transfer rates. They run slightly warmer than other 7200 drives that I own, but only by a few degrees centigrade. Large file transfers clock in at around 150 MB/s. The physical build quality and finish is excellent throughout. I've not had them long enough to comment on long term reliability, but have had no problems so far. 31 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Top quality at a great price Must have HDD at a great price! Quiet, quick and hopefully will continue to work for years to come 30 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good for reliable storage. Works OK with Windows 10. On first use I checked the S.M.A.R.T statistics which were fine. Access noise is slightly louder than other HDs I have but not a problem. Runs hotter than slower HDs so needs good ventilation. 12 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for nas Ordered these after 2 hdds (Samsung spinpoint f1's) in my nas died, so far so good. I did alot of research and the mean failure time of these drives seems to be the best! This is no indicator these drives will last but I'm very happy regardless. 01 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Quality vs Price Bought 2 similar HGST 4TB for NAS 3 years ago which have proved 100% reliable. I was looking for 2 more for expansion and a well known supplier wanted more than I paid before. These at ~£120 represent the best Bytes for your Buck (£ per TB). I was going to set the 4 as RAID but did some reading online and concluded that 4 separate volumes is safer as there is a good chance of losing all your data with RAID disks of this size if one fails. 19 February 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by A lot more noisy than reds Swayed by the reliability stories I ended up getting 4TB drives which actually all seem very similar in the stats. Not especially noisy but the 2TB reds I had before in synology ds213j were virtually inaudible. Head clatter is quite loud and spinning rumble gets past the rubber feet. Not significantly faster in this device. If I could do it again I'd buy the reds but this is in a very quiet room. 03 February 2016

NAS vs 7K4000

What is the difference between this model and the Deskstar 7K4000? (Scan code: LN44755)

Is there a performance difference between the 2 HDDs or is it just branding?

Thanks.

Answer: 
The LN 55792 is designed for 24x7 use inside a NAS unit so should be considered the better quality drive, but performance between the two drives should be the same.

Answer: 
Same performance, I have both drives, and very minimal performance difference, most likely due to the purposely tweaked firmware of the drives.

Answer: 
I believe that the NAS drive is aimed at home users and the 7K4000 is aimed at business users (hence enterprise in the description). This would appear to be backed up by the fact that the only apparent difference between the two is that the Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) is twice as long on the 7K4000 (2 Million Hrs vs. 1mil), and the price is about £60 more expensive on the 7K4000. Hope this helps!

Answer: 
I don't know what the difference is except that
1. according to the Scan website the Deskstar 7K4000 has been discontinued

2. According to this blog entry http://blog.synology.com/?p=1130 , the Deskstar 7k4000 has a higher Power-On Hours rating, similar to Enterprise Class Drives rather than Desktop Class Drives.

Answer: 
Realistically I think it is just branding. However, it is worth noting that this drive doesn't have the freefall sensor that the 7K4000 does. The free fall sensor locks the heads in place away from the platters if the drive falls to prevent the heads crashing. This NAS branded drive lacks this feature so therefore it would not be suitable, say, for use in an external caddy.

That said, there's no reason you couldn't use this drive in a regular desktop system as a daily use hard drive. I have 4 of these going 24/7 in a Freenas server running Plex to serve media to multiple clients and no issues so far.

Answer: 
No real performance difference, but this is designed to run 24x7, the deskstar is intended for desktops with power cycles. Personally I'd go for the 7K4000 as that is old school Hitachi, the NAS drive gave me issues.
